Q: When it rains is it still necessary to perform the waterless car wash on my car? What is the relationship between rain and the waterless car wash?
A: This is a great question and one that we are receiving all the time. First let’s look at how rain relates to a regular car wash before noting the differences with the waterless car wash. Most people think that when it rains out that there is actually no need to wash their cars because the water is doing it all for them. A traditional car wash place would be quick to tell you that you are wrong because they are only looking for your business. In reality, it is our opinion that rain might actually do a better job of washing your car than the guys at your neighborhood car wash. One thing is for certain, it is definitely much easier on the environment as there will be no wasted water (that rain was going to fall anyways) and no more extra soap residue and other nasty chemicals washing into the earth.
The only bad part is the rain will wash off the dirt but won’t do a single thing to protect your car from getting dirty in the future. While we can’t actually fault the rain for this as its function isn’t to wash your car, it is still a downside in our opinion.
So for those of you that have already caught on to the benefits of using the waterless car wash, you might be asking whether or not is a good idea to use the waterless car wash after it has rained. The answer is most definitely “Yes”. This is because the waterless car was features a special compound that protects your car from all things including rain. You might notice that after using the waterless car wash that rain seems to simply bead off of your car as if the rain was afraid of being anywhere near your car.
What this means is that there is basically an invisible layer between the surface of your car and the rest of the world. This invisible layer goes to great lengths to protect your car in all situations and believe us, your car will get very dirty without it. So in essence the water doesn’t have any real effect on your car, your car will maintain the same level of cleanliness whether it is raining or shining.
In the end, this is really the only answer that makes sense. It is of course known as the waterless car wash so having water used of any kind would pretty much defeat the point. While rain is certainly not harmful for your car when using the waterless car wash, it doesn’t really have any effect at all. It is important to still stick to your regular schedule of using the waterless car wash so that you can keep the protection and shine of your car going for as long as possible.
